Day 9+ .... Silverton
Headed towards Broken Hill … through endless red desert … past many many dried up waterholes, and accompanied by plethora of Kangaroos, a few Emus, a massive Wedge Tailed Eagle, and a flock of Major Mitchells. Tough life for those trying to make a living out here!!!
Headed straight to the Demo Club in Broken Hill to watch Carlton beat Gold Coast on the big screen … life is good!!
Then slowly headed to Silverton at Dusk – terrified of crazy Kangaroos jumping out in front of us. Silverton is a great little town.
50 residents, but peaked at 3000 in the late 1800’s ... mainly tourism now + used for several films including Mad Max. The iconic Silverton Pub is a ripper, Sunset wine at the Mundi Mundi lookout overlooking South Australia desert, Mine tour at Day Dream Mine,
wandered through a few art galleries, and visited the old school (Donna could have stayed there all day looking at the old social studies books, school readers etc), and the Gaol which is now a museum full of more junk than you can poke a stick at!!!. Great spot.
